Building Healthy Families Since 1983

In the fall we had the great pleasure of photographing our friends and loyal customers, the Pigott family. We love Oliver and Danka’s story. They began shopping at the Big Carrot 10 years ago and have since had two beautiful twin boys! They remind us that we are more than a store; we are a space where people come together.

Together we build healthy families, and healthy families build healthy communities! It is our mission and priority to provide you and your family with healthy options for optimal living, a space to learn, explore and enjoy. You are at the centre of everything we do! We are your partner in wellness, you are our family.

Just did a hard workout? Up your smoothie game with our superfood menu. Kids need a snack? Come and enjoy a myriad of kid -friendly, nutritionist approved, nutrient dense treats.

Nourish Yourself & Your Family

Healthy eating is not always easy. We all get busy or uninspired from time to time. The Carrot Kitchen makes healthy and delicious meals every day so that you don’t have to! Grab & Go meals help with those weeknight dilemmas. Our organic muffins are baked everyday and have become a neighbourhood favourite!

Love Your Body

What goes on your body is as important as what goes in it! We carefully curate our body and oral care as well as our makeup lines so that you can feel confident about your product choices. Our products are free from dozens of harmful ingredients including parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulphate, petroleum, aluminum, oxybenzone, artificial colours and many more. Our staff expertise includes aestheticians, aromatherapists and makeup artists.  For those looking to reduce their impact, we have organic and reusable menstrual products, bamboo toothbrushes, bulk soaps, DIY ingredients and other eco-conscious options. 

Together, Let’s Reduce

We know that reducing environmental impact is on everyone’s mind. Our Bring Your Own Container program rewards you for doing good (see reward page for details). We’re also proud to offer a number of eco-friendly product alternatives throughout the store. From clean laundry products, beeswax wraps and reusable straws to bulk sized soaps and reusable produce bags, we’re on a mission to help you shop and consume more consciously. Because together, we can reduce.

Affordable Organic Every Day

We are committed to supplying you with certified organic produce every single day and making it affordable for you and your family. You won’t find anything but organic and wild produce in our stores. We buy directly from local producers whenever possible, and work with a number of certified organic, local distributors striving for an organic chain of supply, all the way from organic farm to store shelf. We know you want to buy organic foods because they’re good for you and for the planet. Championing organic is important to us. We believe in supporting agriculture that excludes the use of synthetic fungicides, pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers AND builds healthy soil. The impact of buying organic produce reaches far and wide. Only the best for your family and the planet.
